The Packaging Department processes material in a laboratory environment/production area with lab bench work surfaces for filling/dispensing research reagents into customer facing vials using electronic and manual pipettors. The packaging technician gathers the materials required for their order: liquid bulk reagent (antibody or buffer), vials/bottles, caps, paperwork, labels and prepares and organizes the starting materials accurately and then presents the production order setup for line clearance. A trained associate (Line Clearance Technician) then verifies the accuracy of the materials and paperwork then signs-off on the paperwork to allow the Packaging Technician to proceed with the completion of the order.
Weekly schedules are provided to the Packaging Technicians, with daily priorities indicated. The priorities can change and Packaging Coordinators will relay any change in assignment priority to the Packaging Technicians. Packaging Technicians receive approximately 4-7 assignments per 8 hour shift. The orders vary in quantity from 8 eaches to 1000-2000 each builds.
